Watch this video to learn more about the sculptor.


The Nasher Sculpture Center named Michael Rakowitz winner of the Nasher Prize in September. The Chicago-based Iraqi-American received $100,000, and he’ll be feted at a series of events this spring.

But who is he? The Nasher and Quin Mathews Productions partnered with Art&Seek to create this short video to tell you a bit more about him. Look for more videos in the coming weeks.  Here’s a piece Hady Mawajdeh wrote about Rakowitz for Art&Seek when the prize winner was announced.
